We are finalizing lots now for our November auctions and are already in the planning stages for our February 2018 live and online auctions. Wine collectors considering selling are asked to submit lists for consideration at least 10 weeks prior to each auction. The dates for 2018 auctions are posted on the website.
We look forward to offering you another robust and invigorating offering online from November 20 – 28.
